    Winter color

    As I mentioned in the topic up above in the 'sticky', the VFTs that tend to get red during the season, get even redder during the fall/winter. Mine spend their winters under lights in a back basement 'cold' room where the temps range from low 40's to low 50's (*F). When spring comes, they head back outside.

    Since there are so few bold colors to be found around here in the winter, glancing at these guys brightens things up & reminds me that spring isn't far off....

    Dingley's 'Red/purple' - above & below


    VFT - finetooth x red

    This clone (below) was interesting just because it mostly colored it's 'fingers' (hence the name 'Long Red Fingers'):


    Apologies for the conditions - I didn't bother snipping any black leaves or cleaning up random pot debris. That doesn't happen until they go back outside...
    All the best,
    Ron

    Here's a VFT 'Big Mouth' with some color...


    ...and a different VFT 'Long Red Fingers' showing a trap similar to a VFT 'Fused Tooth':


    Joosa - the lights are on 10 - 12 hrs per day. The bulbs are old & weak.

    I like your "Long red fingers". I'm new to CPs. Would doing a tissue cloning reproduce VFTs with the same features? If so, have you ever thought of doing so? I'd be interested.

    As I understand it, this plant is a t/c mutation and is available from a number of retailers...

    Very neat plants with good color, but I don't understand the reason for sticky. So I unstuck it. I'll be going through all stickied threads in the near future. Seems to be a lot accumulating up there.
